Mosix-4.1.1


Hello

I'm used to work with Mosix 2 and 3 as a cluster manager software. However, when the new version of Mosix namely (4.1.1) was released, I started to use it to upgrade my system. I wonder that not only the patch for openmpi was removed bu also some useful Mosix tools was eliminated (/proc file system and some queuing utilities). It is happen that I've done the wrong thing during the installation. Perhaps someone can help to go through this.

We can try, but you haven't actually posted a problem or question that anyone can help you with.

You've said you upgraded, and some things are missing that you used to have....did you try to look up what happened to them in the release notes? Look for the updated versions?

I think that my installation is incorrect but I do not know how! The Mosix's manual says there is /proc fs and I've not seen it in my installations. It also doesn't mentioned that it'd been eliminated!!!! So what can I do to have this kernel interface? You may find all things related to Moisx here Mosix.

I absolutely can not send email to this "il" domain because of my country politics (That is not related to me and my researches).

Sorry, but we are NOT going to read the documentation for you. If you think there's a problem, then you have to figure out what it IS, and ask before anyone can try to help. Again, at this point, you have not posted a question/problem.

Then you probably should also not be using Mosix, since it's probably on the list of banned-exports to whatever country you're in. The LQ Rules specifically forbid anyone from helping defeat region restrictions, hacking, or anything that might be illegal for the user, no matter WHAT the situation, and regardless of how we feel about it.

I do not complain about politics. I'd just tried to figure out my situation, told I cant ask creators, and gotten my problem solved!!! I can not ask its creators, but, asking questions is not a fault, ignorance is a defect!

I've done exactly what the manual said. Without any error, the Mosix was installed on my OpenSUSE-13.2. The manual says that there is a kernel interface reside in /proc while my installation does not contain any!!! I did search on change logs and found nothings that would say the /proc is eliminated because of a reason!!!! So, I decided to ask anyone who have attempted to install Mosix 4.1.1 to share his/her experiences with me. For example, There is no sign of any requirement report in the manual about installing daemon utility! I found this truth after some installation error appears on the screen.

So, Dear Guru, if you do not work with Mosix, there is no need to reply the post to convince that I did not bring a problem (you might do not know a true definition of the problem!!). And, I do not ask you to pursue the manual indeed. Please, if you did not know how to solve a problem would be relax to give up!!!

I've tried some tools like strace to find out how its command-line utilities execute user's requests. I know that it installs 4 daemons on system and uses some IPC mechanisms (such as signal, pipe and files) to deliver user requests to 4 daemons. I couldn't trace control flow of request inside daemons to see are they use /proc or not? However, I'm waiting for someone who reply the post with a helpful guide.

Again, you say it's 'illegal' (somehow), for you to contact the creators or to send an email. If your countries politics say it's illegal to email them, I find it VERY hard to believe it's legal to use the software they wrote.

So, back to what you were asked ORIGINALLY, in the first reply, YOU DON'T ACTUALLY TELL US WHAT THE ERROR(S) ARE. You say "after some installation error", but don't bother to tell us WHAT that is, exactly. Unless you provide details, there is NOTHING we can help you with.

Your entire problem up until this post consisted of "I upgraded, and think something is missing, but I'm not sure, can someone read the manual for me?"

Because, as said, you have NOT TOLD US what problem(s) you're having. You mention a missing /proc, then say you're not sure if it's supposed to be like that or not. And until this post, you didn't mention openSUSE did you??? Again, unless you PROVIDE DETAILS AND ASK A QUESTION, there is NOTHING we can help you with.

Really?? Then why did you post in post #3 "You may find all things related to Moisx here Mosix."? If you have a specific thing in that manual, point to it please. Again, we're not going to read the manual and release notes for you.

We might know how to solve it, if you actually posted it.

...and how does this fit in with your 'problem' upgrading?
